Concept Art and Phony Color Wheels

Embarrassing story time. (Because that's obviously the best way to start a post.) You know how I spent the last few months whining about my art class? Heralding the end of it in January as my salvation from the drudgery of modern art? Claiming how free I would be, and how I was NEVER going… Continue reading Concept Art and Phony Color Wheels

About that Book… (plus a new title, and other cool stuff)

SO. You may remember¬†a post I did back in September, when I announced that I was taking an official leave-of-absence from my book, The Silvershaw of Glenborn, to explore other stories and hopefully get the pain to subside in my neck. (Boy, that was a run-on sentence.) Well. No matter how hard I try, I… Continue reading About that Book… (plus a new title, and other cool stuff)

Ink Pens, Abstracts, and the End of All Things (mainly art class)

Monday was the last day of art class, and I have but one thing to say to you all: FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOM. *wild screeching* *energetic fist-pumping* *crazed cackling* *flips the table* I get to paint what I want now. No more modern art. No more mutilated-looking fish. Nothing but a blank canvas and the prospect of as… Continue reading Ink Pens, Abstracts, and the End of All Things (mainly art class)

Blue Sky Tag (AKA me rambling about myself)

Well what do you know. I've been tagged. Tremendous thanks, hand shaking, and purple glitter go to the amazing Kate Flournoy of The Inky Notebook, along with strong encouragement for my peeps to go check out her blog, because it's pretty cool. (And SO BEAUTIFUL, oh my goodness. What's with these people and their beautiful… Continue reading Blue Sky Tag (AKA me rambling about myself)

Van Gogh, Da Vinci, and a Cool Little Fish Child

Heeeeey, guys... I'm totally not embarrassed about failing to post last week. Are you embarrassed? 'Cause I'm certainly not. *cough* There was a reason though. See? I'm not completely lazy. The reason, guys, is... None of your business. Moving on. This week, I was racking my brain for the easiest things to post about so… Continue reading Van Gogh, Da Vinci, and a Cool Little Fish Child

Goodbye, Book

Alright, people, I have an announcement to make. We all (hopefully) know that I'm writing a book that hates me. Not only does it resist being written, it's extremely disobedient and rebellious, and my characters make tons of messes that I have to clean up. It's been a thorn in my side for two years… Continue reading Goodbye, Book

Mary, Monkey, and a Student Showcase

Last Monday was the last day of my homeschool co-op's art class. To commemorate my great achievement of making it through two whole semesters without dying from an overdose of people, I'm doing another art post. If I randomly yell "You shall not PASS!!!" in the middle of it, please forgive me. My brain is… Continue reading Mary, Monkey, and a Student Showcase

Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters

I had plans for this blog post. For the first time in my life, I wrote it a week before I was supposed to publish it. I would wait for Thursday and post it like any respectable blogger. Right? Wrong. My dear mother was so impatient to read it that I, being the dutiful daughter… Continue reading Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters
